This is cement siding by James Hardie. Clapboard is 4" exposure and shingles are 5". You will need to consult the installation specs depending on which product you choose.

Porch width - Beautiful! Can you tell me the porch size?

Thanks, the porch size is about 8'-0" to the back of the columns and 32'-0" in length. You will want to have a porch width of 9'-0" so there is room to have a column and base trim. This will leave you 8'-0" of usable space to have a reclining chair or other furniture on the porch with space to maneuver.

Where can I get the pergola?

Hello, the pergola was made on site with cedar and then primed and painted. These are 4"x4" cedar brackets about 24" in height and 24" in length. The upper cedar pergola is 2"x8" with 2"x2" cedar pieces at the top. The white is actually a solid stain, technically not paint.

I love the exterior paint color and trim? What is it?

Hello, the colors are factory paint choices from the shingle and siding manufacturer. This is the link to the siding manufacturer and you will see the choice of stock colors. I do not recall the exact choice at the time of construction.
